The Lower Sixth have been engaging in a series of Higher Education preparation activities this week.
We were delighted to welcome the University of Sheffield, who gave a presentation on applying to the Russell Group, and led a session on writing academically in preparation for an undergraduate degree. In addition, Trinity College Dublin joined us to explain the Irish application process. Those interested in Medicine and Veterinary Science were hard at work preparing for UCAT/BMAT and were fortunate that several Old Dolphins led a session on the realities of university life for Medics and Vets. US applicants engaged with sessions on the Common Application, Personal Essay and Supplementary essay and there were sessions on making applications to Canada. Those interested in Law began their preparation for the LNAT and there were a broad variety of university preparation sessions delivered by a whole host of Godolphin staff. Pupils were able to gain insight into honing their public speaking confidence in sessions with Laughology which they will hopefully put to good use whilst developing their EE vivas and their EPQ presentations.
On Thursday evening the Lower Sixth were joined by students from partner schools KAA and Greenford High for the Evening of Academic Conversation event. This gave students an opportunity to discuss academic topics with fellow students and a host of guests with backgrounds which included Finance, Law and entrepreneurship. We are most grateful to the Old Dolphins and parents who contributed to this.
